If I invoke mythcommflag -v all, I do get a butt-load or output, but
mythbackend -v all,nojobqueue,noschedule,nodatabase,nosocket doesn't
pass it through to the comflagger (probably a good thing, given the
volume of output).

On another topic, what's the status of CommDetector2? I just noticed
that the scene change detector is disabled, leaving just blank frame
and logo detection.
